The History of the Margarita

The general thought is the Margarita was named for a “Mexican cutie,” but actually it was named for American actress Marjorie King (Margarita is Spanish for Marjorie). When Marjorie visited Danny Herrera’s Rancho de Gloria in 1948, Marjorie had acute allergies to all the liquors, except Tequila. Thankfully, for us today Danny came up with a concoction that has a place in the cocktail Parthenon for us today!

From rock glasses, to Margarita glasses (a variation on the traditional coupe glass), to multi-straw fishbowls, the Margarita has exploded with variations of flavors as the go-to party drink. Now, let get to how to make a perfect Margarita.
